People & Power: Syria Songs of Defiance – Al Jazeera English Documentary


People & Power Syria Songs of Defiance Al Jazeera English Documentary

Journalist who was forced to remain anonymous for security reasons offers an unusual but compelling first-person account of a country in turmoil and a revolution in progress.

With cameras banned inside Syria, it was too difficult and dangerous to openly use a video camera, but he was able to use his mobile phone. With its tiny camera, filming secretly on street corners, through car windows and behind closed doors, he was able to gather images that reveal ordinary people showing extraordinary courage.

His journey took him from the back streets of Damascus, Homs and Idlib to remote mountain villages. During his journey through the Syrian uprising, he meets resistance fighters, protesters, Syrian army deserters, footballers-turned-revolutionaries and cigarette smugglers who have joined the fight.
